Apple patent application covers case with windscreen for Apple iPhone microphone
Adding a windscreen to a case is a big deal for Apple whose own cases for its smartphone have traditionally been simple, rubber bumpers. When the Antennagate left-handed death grip situation started taking on a life of its own following the launch of the Apple iPhone 4, the Cupertino based tech giant sent out simple, free rubber bumpers to Apple iPhone 4 buyers. Those who want more serious protection for their Apple iPhone need to look at third party manufacturers whose cases offer everything from water and dust resistant protection, to a built in QWERTY keyboard or extra battery life.
Apple has been awarded a design patent for its Smart Cover and Smart Case that protects the front, and front and back of the Apple iPad respectively. Opening the case awakens your tablet while closing it puts the Apple iPad to sleep.
